The New Zealand international has struggled for regular football at Heerenveen.
Ange Postecoglou announces he will step aside from his role as coach of the Socceroos
Rangers are currently on the hunt for a new manager, after the unpopular reign of Pedro Caixinha came to an end. One name who has recently been heavily linked with the role is Ange Postecoglou. The Australian recently quit his job as national coach of the Socceroos and has been linked with a move to Ibrox in recent weeks.
He would be an impressive appointment from the club considering his no-nonsense approach to management and if he did arrive there are plenty of players he has worked with who would be more than welcome at Rangers.
Whilst the easy list of former players to look at consists of Australians, it is a New Zealander who Rangers would relish having at the club.
Marco Rojas of the All Whites makes a break
Postecoglou was manager at A-League side Melbourne Victory from 2012-13 and whilst at the club he had the pleasure of working with the talent of winger Marco Rojas.
He played 27 times and scored 15 goals in his season under Postecoglou, form which saw him dubbed the ‘Kiwi Messi’ and earn a move to Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart. He spent most of his time in Germany out on loan before returning to the Victory last year and again thriving.
In the summer he headed to Dutch side Heerenveen, but has not managed to cement himself a regular starting place at the Eredivisie side - playing most of his games as a sub.
Marco Rojas of the Victory runs with the ball
No doubt Rojas will be fearing the worst about his latest move to Europe, but working under Postecoglou at Rangers could be perfect for him to finally find success on the continent.
Rangers would love to have his creative spark in their attacking third and Postecoglou has previously got the best out of the 26-year-old attacker.
If Postecoglou is the man Rangers end up going for, bringing Rojas with him should be a priority.
